Winter Weekend Makeup Look

For the last weekend of Winter, all hail for March and the Spring months, I wanted to share with you a makeup look I have been loving over the last couple of months. Let's face it, the weather isn't feeling particularly spring-like, so I'll be continuing this look for as long as possible. If you want to see how I created this look, stay tuned.
In terms of the products I used, I have been changing up my base products recently. As much as I have been loving the Revlon ColorStay foundation, I bought it in a shade that is slightly too light for me. Does anyone else find it so hard to get the perfect foundation match with the awful lighting in shops?! So, to combat this, I have been mixing it with my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation. I love the dewy glow this foundation gives the skin and it blends in really well with the Revlon foundation.
While this is a Winter look, you still can't pull me away from my Hoola bronzer.  I put a really light sweep of this across the tops of my cheeks and my temples to create a natural bronzed look. No contouring here. For my eyes, I used my trusty Naked 2 palette. I started by mixing 'foxy' and 'bootycall' and sweeping this all over my lid. I do this with pretty much any eye look I am creating. I find it creates a really nice base to blend other eyeshadows into. I then took the colour 'busted' and worked this into my crease initially, bringing down to the lid - focusing on the outer third of my eye. I then took a clean blending brush and blended everything together. I really love this for a quick but effective eye look.  

In terms of my lips, I wanted to keep things really neutral as I had gone a bit darker on the eyes. You may have seen my Primark Beauty Haul and how obsessed I was with their lip crayons. Well, that love has stood the test of time as I am still using them. I opted for a pinky-nude as I thought this would compliment the eyeshadow well. Then with a final sweep of highlighter, the look is complete. 
What have been some of your favourite makeup products this Winter? Any excuse for me to try something new....
Love, Kate xx
